I've gone link crazy!

I spent 2 hrs this morning posting all the links I'll be using this coming school year. And I only posted the major ones, not all the little ones for individual lessons! Or any of my "links" links! I hope someone gets some use out of it.

I woke up early this morning. It felt nice to be awake as the sun was coming up. It's been awhile.

So today I'll finish up the reading lists. I need to start putting them in the order I want to read them, and start locating them.

And until my AOP lifepacs come in, I'm pretty much done. I'm sure I'll keep going over stuff, reading books and lessons. I do need to start refining the outline for the first couple months. Actually put the lessons together, resources, field trips, experiments, etc. That should take up about a week. And then I plan to use those weeks off ever 8-9 weeks to get working on the next set of lessons. I hope I can stay on top of this and not get lazy!

I'm thinking, if I can get the kids "caught up" to grade level, I might purchase more curriculum for 2008-09, instead of trying to do it all myself. Especially as K will be entering "middle school" and some of those subjects are going to get tough. A premade curriculum might be a good idea. I'd really like to get them the online type of curriculum. That'd be awesome. Way less paper around here!

That's my goal for today. Better get going.

Just saying hello! I was hunting down other homeschoolers online that use LifePacs. Thought it might be an interesting search, and my kids are excited to see that others use the same curriculum!
